Did you know Yellowstone is working to install bear-proof food storage boxes in all 1,907 roadside campground sites? These boxes improve visitor safety and promote the conservation of black and grizzly bears by reducing the need to kill bears in management actions. To date, employees like Kerry Gunther and Yellowstone Youth Conservation Corps members have installed 943 boxes throughout the park. This project is funded in part by our official non-profit partner, Yellowstone Forever.
